Spectrofluorimetric determination of nomifensine in human plasma and urine by derivatization with fluorescamine.
Summary of "Spectrofluorimetric determination of nomifensine in human plasma and urine by derivatization with fluorescamine."
A sensitive, simple and rapid spectrofluorimetric method was developed for the determination of nomifensine in human plasma and urine. The present method was based on the derivatization by fluorescamine in phosphate buffer at pH 4.0 to produce a highly fluorescent product which was measured at 488 nm (excitation at 339 nm). The method was validated according to the ICH guidelines with respect to linearity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, accuracy, precision, recovery and robustness. The assay was linear over the concentration ranges 100-2,000 and 50-2,000 ng/mL for plasma and urine, respectively. The limits of detection were calculated to be 13.9 and 7.5 ng/mL for plasma and urine, respectively. The method was successfully applied to the analysis of the drug in human plasma and urine.

Renal Plasma Flow, Effective
The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.
Compounds that increase urine volume by increasing the amount of osmotically active solute in the urine. Osmotic diuretics also increase the osmolarity of plasma.
A protein extract of human menopausal urine in which LUTEINIZING HORMONE has been partially or completely removed. Urofollitropin represents FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE from the urine.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
An 11-kDa protein associated with the outer membrane of many cells including lymphocytes. It is the small subunit of the MHC class I molecule. Association with beta 2-microglobulin is generally required for the transport of class I heavy chains from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface. Beta 2-microglobulin is present in small amounts in serum, csf, and urine of normal people, and to a much greater degree in the urine and plasma of patients with tubular proteinemia, renal failure, or kidney transplants.
A new method was developed for determination of ketamine (KT) in urine and plasma samples by derivatization and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. In this article, KT was first derivatized with sod...

Cancer patients in clinical trials donate various human samples (e.g., serum, plasma, blood, urine, feces, bile, saliva) for research purposes. The purpose of this study is to conduct fur...
Compliance with treatment is notoriously low in psychiatric patients. Traditional methods of monitoring compliance, however, may underreport nonadherence to treatment. In this study, act...
This study should compare the propofol concentration in breathing gas and in plasma (before and) after lung passage. Propofol concentrations in breathing gas are continuously measured by a...
The core of the proposal is a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, controlled study which will compare the efficacy of dextran 70 versus human albumin in the treatment of cirrhotic pat...
